    Description: But even as we glance over the grimy world before us, the sun shines radiantly over the earth, the aspen leaves shimmer in the evening breeze, the coo of the mourning dove and the swelling chorus of the insects fills the land, while down in the hollows the mists deepen the fragrance of the honeysuckle. Soon the late summer moon will give a light sheen to the landscape. Something of a dream experience. Perhaps on occasion we participate in the original dream of the earth. Perhaps there are times when the primordial design becomes visible, as in a palimpsest, when we remove the later imposition. The dream of the earth. Where else can we go for the guidance needed for the task that is before us? Thomas Berry (1990:223).

    Description: Ureteroscopy is increasingly used to manage nephrolithiasis, upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma and other urological conditions. In this study we determine the rate of readmission and emergency department visits after ureteroscopy in an underserved population, as well as factors associated with these unplanned visits. A retrospective chart review from 2010 to 2014 of all elective ureteroscopies was conducted at a single tertiary hospital serving an underserved population in a major metropolis. Demographic, operative and discharge characteristics were collected and analyzed. A total of 276 ureteroscopies were performed with 15.6% presenting to the emergency department within 30 days. Overall 5.8% were readmitted. Readmitted patients were more likely to have hypertension (OR 3.64, p=0.02), asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (OR 5.54, p=0.001), 2 or more comorbidities (OR 3.65, p=0.12), or a complication associated with ureteroscopy (OR 7.27, p=0.007). The patients who sought care in the emergency department after ureteroscopy were less likely to have had a ureteral stent in place before ureteroscopy (OR 0.35, p=0.017) or an endoscopic urological procedure within the last 30 days (OR 0.35, p=0.045). About two-thirds of patients who presented to the emergency department complained of pain alone, while the most common complaints for readmitted patients were fever and pain (43.8%). The majority of emergency department visits after ureteroscopy were due to pain. These patients were less likely to have a preoperative ureteral stent placed or a history of recent urological procedures. Readmission rates were associated with overall comorbidities and complications.

    Description: ABSTRACT Fractures of the pediatric craniofacial skeleton can be challenging to manage. The initial injury and subsequent treatment can cause long-term growth disturbances yielding problematic secondary deformities. This review considers the normal growth of the craniofacial skeleton and typical facial fracture presentations in children and discusses the potential long-term sequelae from these injuries and their management.

    Description: The effect of the former Soviet Union crude oil exports on the Japanese VLCC market and its Middle East oil imports: Is near sourcing viable? Japan is a major net importer of ‘primary energy’. Although recent government policies have been directed towards diversifying the type and origin of procurement, she is still empowered, in the main, by Middle East Gulf crude oil supplies. Russia with ample export quantities of crude oil within 1000 km of Japan could provide an alternative ‘near source’. Is it viable? And if so, then what effect is it likely to have on the Japanese VLCC fleet? By a review of available material an overview is provided and explored in the context of Japan's current oil policies and sourcing. Prospects for alternative sourcing are investigated and conclusions finally reached.

    Description: Byline: Nikoo R. Saber (1), John Phillips (2), Thomas Looi (1), Zoha Usmani (1), Jonathan Burge (2), James Drake (3), Peter C. W. Kim (1,4) Keywords: Remodeling; Craniofacial surgery; Skull library; Template Abstract: Purpose While the goal of craniofacial reconstruction surgery is to restore the cranial head shape as much towards normal as possible, for the individual patient, there is, in fact, no normal three-dimensional (3D) model to act as a guide. In this project, we generated a library of normative pediatric skulls from which a guiding template could be fabricated for a more standardized, objective and precise correction of craniosynostosis. Methods Computed tomography data from 103 normal subjects aged 8--12 months were compiled and a 3D computational model of the skull was generated for each subject. The models were mathematically registered to a baseline model for each month of age within this range and then averaged, resulting in a single 3D point cloud. An external cranial surface was subsequently passed through the point cloud and its shape and size customized to fit the head circumference of individual patients. Results The resultant fabricated skull models provide a novel and applicable tool for a detailed, quantitative comparison between the normative and patient skulls for preoperative planning and practice for a variety of craniofacial procedures including vault remodeling. Additionally, it was possible to extract the suprafrontal orbit anatomy from the normative model and fabricate a bandeau template to guide intraoperative reshaping. Conclusions Normative head shapes for pediatric patients have wide application for craniofacial surgery including planning, practice, standarized operative repair, and standardized measurement and reporting of outcomes.

    Description: We sought to determine our rate of postoperative sepsis after ureteroscopy as well as identifying associative factors, common antibiotic practices along with culture data. Records of all patients who underwent elective ureteroscopy from 2010 to 2015 at an urban tertiary care facility were retrospectively reviewed. Factors thought to be associated with infection were collected, along with comorbidities depicted as Charlson Age-Adjusted Comorbidity Index (CAACI) and American Society of Anesthesia (ASA) score. Each patient's course was reviewed to determine if they were treated for postoperative sepsis as defined by standardized criteria. A total of 345 patients underwent elective ureteroscopy with 15 (4.3%) being treated for sepsis postoperatively. This resulted in an additional 5.33 ± 3.84 days of hospitalization per patient. The sepsis group grew three gram positive organisms and five multi-drug resistant (MDR) gram negatives while 7/15 (46.7%) had negative cultures. The most common preoperative antibiotics used in the sepsis group were cefazolin (60.0%), gentamicin (48.5%) and ciprofloxacin (20.0%). Univariate analysis showed prior endoscopic procedures, recent treatment for urinary tract infections (UTI), multiple comorbidities and longer operative times associated with sepsis. However, significant variables after multivariate analysis were treatment for UTI within the last month, (OR) 7.19 (2.25-22.99), p = 0.001. Patients with multiple comorbidities, prior endoscopic procedures, longer operative times and especially those recently treated for a urinary infection should be carefully monitored after ureteroscopy for signs of sepsis. Perioperative antibiotics in these patients should be selected to cover both MDR organisms and gram positives.
